Personal Approach

Her core approach to counselling is ‘Person Centred’. This kind of counselling places great emphasis on providing a safe, empathic, non-judgemental space for clients to discuss whatever is troubling them.  In addition she also offers a Cognitive Behavioural Approach using practical techniques drawn from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT helps you identify and change unhelpful thoughts, patterns and behaviours.

She is an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adheres to their Ethical Framework. I hold professional liability insurance for my work.

Her fee is £70 for individuals and £90 for couples.  Some concessions are available – do ask.
